EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT POWDERS !




Firstly what’s the difference between finishing powder, HD powder, setting powder, pressed powder and loose powder?

To begin: pressed and loose powders are sisters, not twins.

Loose powder comes in a jar, has smaller particles (and therefore a finer consistency), and usually give lightweight coverage. They’re also messy and hard to transport, so these guys are meant to stay at home.

Pressed powder comes in a compact and contains ingredients used to turn the product into a semi-solid. These are usually things like silicones and waxes, so if your skin is annoyed by that stuff, you may have a hard time with pressed powder. Because the particles are slightly bigger and contain these stick-together ingredients, applying too much pressed powder can result in a cake-y appearance. Using a little as a touch-up throughout the day, though, is quick and easy.

The difference between setting powder and finishing powder is a little nebulous. Many companies use these terms interchangeably, so it’s partially a matter of marketing.

Setting powder is what we think of as classic powder--it goes on after your foundation to get rid of shine and "set" it so that it lasts a long time. It can be tinted to match your skin or translucent.

Finishing powder is generally used AFTER setting powder to blur fine lines and pores, giving you an extra-perfect look. It’s best for situations where you’re going to be photographed a lot, rather than an essential step for everyday makeup. These powders are white.

If you’re going to be dealing with powerful cameras and flashes, you'll need to be careful with finishing powders. If you use too much or don't blend well, you can look like you fell face-down in a bucket of baby powder. This is because the light from the flash can bounce off certain ingredients, causing the dreaded chalky-white FLASHBACK.

But for normal life, applying a finishing powder as a setting powder won’t have terrible consequences if you use a little and blend it well.


HD powders are usually finishing powders. They are so named because makeup artists working on TV and movies that shoot in high definition found that other powders read as too heavy on film

HOME REMEDY FOR CLEAR SKIN (MUST READ) !





Every woman wants picture-perfect, flawless skin. Clear and beautiful skin is one of the main elements of a person’s beauty. Healthy skin helps you feel beautiful as well.

Your skin care regimen and lifestyle habits are the primary predictors of your skin’s health. Some of the leading factors that take a toll on the quality and texture of your skin are stress, lack of sleep, poor nutrition, pollution, damage from the sun’s ultraviolet rays, excessive smoking and drinking alcohol.

There are thousands of skin and beauty care products that promise to give you clear and glowing skin. Instead of relying on these products, you can try some simple and easy home remedies to improve the overall health and appearance of your skin.

1. Honey
To enjoy clear skin, your need to keep your skin well moisturized. Honey is a great moisturizer and also has antibacterial properties that help ward off infection.

Apply raw honey directly on your skin. Let it dry naturally and then rinse it off with lukewarm water. The water content in honey will deeply moisturize the skin, making it soft and supple. Do this simple remedy once daily or every other day.
Alternatively, mix two teaspoons of milk and one teaspoon of honey. Then add one teaspoon of gram flour and mix it in well. Apply it all over your face. Leave it on for 20 minutes and then rinse it off with warm water. Use this face mask once a week to enjoy radiant and clear skin.

2 Aloe Vera
Aloe vera has many benefits for the skin. It has antibacterial properties that help kill bacteria that cause acne, anti-inflammatory properties that help soothe irritated skin, and astringent properties that help heal scars. Plus, aloe vera moisturizes the skin and stimulates new skin cell growth.

Extract the gel from an aloe vera leaf.
Apply the gel on your face using a cotton ball.
Allow it to dry on its own for about half an hour, and then rinse it off with lukewarm water.
Follow this remedy daily or several times per week

3. Lemon
Lemon is one of the best ingredients that you can use to promote clear skin. The citric acid present in lemon helps keep the skin clear by removing dead cells, and its vitamin C content helps reduce dark spots by increasing the cell renewal process. Lemon also has bleaching properties that will help improve your overall skin complexion.

Apply fresh-squeezed lemon juice to your entire face and neck. Leave it on for 10 minutes and then wash it off with lukewarm water. After this, rub cucumber slices on your skin to soften and moisturize it. Do this daily or every other day.
Another option is squeeze the juice of one-half lemon and mix one to two tablespoons of raw honey in it. Apply it on your face, leave it on for 15 to 20 minutes and then rinse it off.

To exfoliate your skin, mix two teaspoons each of lemon juice and sugar. Apply the mixture on your face, neck and hands. Scrub in a circular motion and leave it on for 10 minutes. Then rinse it off with lukewarm water. Follow this remedy once a week to enjoy glowing skin

THE NUDE SHOW (3 GREAT TIPS) !



Nude Lips are the perfect way to make a bold statement in a subtle way. Nude lips have a classy, sexy look that goes great with dark eyes, sophisticated hairstyles or whatever you feel like styling' that day. You can pull off nude lips with practically any look as long as you do it the right way!

Exfoliate
You don't want a flaky surface to start out on. Guys want soft, kissable lips! Besides, nude lips show flakes and dry skin even more so than colored lips. Use a wet washcloth, an old toothbrush or a lip scrub to gently exfoliate all those dead skin cells off your lips!

Apply lip balm
Your next step to achieving the perfect nude, subtle lips after exfoliation is to apply a clear lip balm. This will help lock in moisture and give your lipstick something to cling to. You don't want anything really oily or glossy, go for a waxy, smooth balm that's not too sticky for the perfect base!

Choose your shade
When choosing a shade of color for nude lips, it's important to keep skin tone in mind. You don't want to appear sick or dead! Here is a pretty basic guideline to follow: if you have a fair skin, you can try a peachy, pink, or even a totally nude shade! Your pale skin will nicely enhance any of these shades. If you have a medium/dark skin, you can go for a peachy beige, or something warmer in color. Definitely stay away from truly pale beiges, creams or white tones or you'll look like a ghost!

THE BEST METHOD FOR TWEEZING YOUR BROWS !


Which hairs you tweeze and which ones you don't is the difference between attractively shaped brows and misshapen ones.
Try using an eyebrow pencil to draw on different shapes over your brow area to see which shape looks the best.
Use a magnifying mirror, at least a 5X magnification, so you can see each hair.
Go slowly (one hair at a time) so you don't over-tweeze.
The beginning of the brow should align with the center of the nostril.
The arch of the brow should fall at the back third of the eye.
The eyebrow should follow the length of the eye but it shouldn't extend into the temple area. The basic rule is that the front part of the brow should never drop below the back part of the brow. Allowing this to happen, either with the way you tweeze your eyebrows or the way you draw them on, makes you look like you’re frowning and overemphasizes the downward movement of the back part of the eye.
Avoid over-tweezing above the brow. A few stray hairs are fine to remove, but too much and it can create an unnatural look.
Do not overstate the shape of the brow; minimal brow alteration is best.
Do not pluck brows into a thin line thinking it will make your eyes look larger. It can look dated or give the face a surprised look and this shape is not easy to correct once the damage is done.

NEW MAKEUP TRICKS FOR TODAY'S WOMAN!


Concealer
Never put concealer or foundation on your eyelids as a base, it will cause your eye makeup to crease.

Foundation
Use your fingers to apply your foundation if you want sheer coverage and a brush if you more polished, medium to full coverage.

 Powder
Always apply powder where you are shiniest first, which it usually your T-zone, with a very light dusting everywhere else.

Bronzer
You should put bronzer on your neck, face, and chest to even out your skin tone. Be sure to take a step back and make sure everything is the same color.

Blush
When applying blush, first smile, then start on the apple of the cheek, blend the blush back towards the top of the ear, then down toward the jawline.

Eyebrow
Always apply your brow pencil or powder to the upper portion of the eyebrow to lift your face up.

Lipstick
You want to make sure your lipstick is not too defined at your cupid's bow (the top of your lip), and that it goes all the way out to the inner corners of your mouth. Be sure to press down hard as you apply.

 Eyeshadow
Always start with a base shadow without any shimmer that matches the lightest skin tone on your face and apply all over your lid up to the brow. You should use this base shadow to make sure the darker shadows used on your lid up to the crease are properly blended.

Eyeliner
Instead of looking straight ahead at the mirror, get as close to it as possible, stick your head up and bring your chin toward the mirror. You want to look down as you apply, starting at the inner corner and making sure to go all the way out to the fold on the outside of the eye.

Mascara

You don't want to do quick soft motions when you apply mascara. Instead, jam the wand into the root of the lash and do zigzag motions as you go up

THE SECRET TRUTH ABOUT RED LIPSTICK!

DO NOT DO AGAIN!
The TRUTH about RED LIPstick is that everyone can wear it, but you have to know the secrets to choosing the proper shade and application. One big mistake women make when they try on red lipstick is they forget to tone down the rest of their makeup (blush, eye shadow etc.) which result in clownish look. The color red makes a statement of its own so when you apply the rest of your make up, be sure to go for a soft natural look.  Here are some secret tips on how to make your red lipstick a love experience.

Secret 1
First and foremost, apply a concealer, especially around the border of your mouth; this will prevent the lipstick from “bleeding” aka smearing.
Match the shade of red to your skin’s undertone. We will use R&B artist to help give a visual effect, for example darker skin tones like Brandy would wear brown based reds, medium skin tones like Rihanna look great in true reds and lighter skin tones look great in lipsticks with orange shades. And of course if that’s not clear, I recommend that you visit your local make up store and get professional consultation from a makeup artist.

Secret 2
Line your lipstick with a liner that’s a slight shade darker than your lipstick, this will help define the lip line

Secret 3
There are two types of finishes you can have for your lipstick, glossy or matte.  You will appreciate the lighter shades of red in a matte finish, it last longer, gives a sexy pout and it speaks “fierce woman”; need I say more? The glossy finish looks extraordinary in darker shades of red; it shimmers, gives a bold look and displays an “I’m every woman” image.

Secret 4
Don't cheat yourself by purchasing a cheap lipstick because that’s the look you will get. Invest extra  in your red lipstick once you find your shade.

Secret 5
Put a Q Tip in your mouth, and pucker up your lips and slowly pull the Q tip from your mouth, this will remove any excess color and will help prevent the lipstick on your teeth.

Secret 6
Wear it with confidence. The color itself speaks a thousand words; make sure your attitude and confidence say the same.
